I was staying in the district for just one night, and based on the great reviews I wanted to check La Puerta out. I ordered the three, "mix and match" taco's, and they were excellent.

We were in SD for a week recently and would often eat dinner around 5:30pm. Many places we visited had the crowd one would expect at an early dinner. But La Puerta was hopping! A lot of people there for a Wednesday night at 5:30,...More

The service could not have been slower. It was almost as if the server was trying to ignore us. When the food finally came, the tacos were very average and super salty. Way too salty for my taste.

Googled tacos near me and this came up as first choice. Street tacos (think small) but yummy and affordable. Get the guac side sampler and try their other salsas in this dish. I had a mix your own 3 tacos, and all were great. Ask...More

Had lunch here w/ a business associate, absolutely loved it. We're both world travelers and this hands down one of the best burritos on the planet. Lots of beer on draft (yes we snuck in a beer for our business lunch, don't judge) and extensive...More

Shrimp tacos amazing & great services. Guacamole not my favorite. Lots of tomatoes & cheese on top. Not my favorite. Consistently delicious tacos!

They give tacos a new meaning! You haven't had tacos 'till you try these! Fun and cool on top of it!

Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Let's all eat tacos! Or something like that. Cheers, Dejanr. We hope you'll stop by again soon!

They can go for breakfast or lunch. I don't remember the cut off time, but after a certain time anyone under 21 is not allowed. I think it is 6pm.
